On 1 December 2016, the Health-RI Conference will take place at Theater De Flint in Amersfoort. After last year’s successful event under the name ‘Empowering Personalized Medicine and Health Research Conference’, BBMRI-NL, ELIXIR-NL, EATRIS-NL, DTL, NFU, Health~HollandFHI and FMS will jointly host this second edition. The conference highlights developments towards a unique nation-wide Research Infrastructure for Personalised Medicine and Health (Health-RI).
The latest developments around Health-RI and Personalised Medicine & Health research will be presented and discussed at the conference. From different perspectives, it will be highlighted what can be achieved by working together to enable ground-breaking biomedical research and bridge the ‘valley-of-death’ between scientific discovery and patient benefit in personalised medicine & health research.
In addition, the one-day programme focuses on how to optimally prepare the Netherlands for implementation of personalised medicine and health for every Dutch citizen, leading to improvements in healthcare and disease prevention. You will hear more about facilitating the development of a continuously growing knowledge base available for research and data mining. By establishing a national (e-) health system, citizens will be given full control over their personal data, while ensuring privacy protection.
A detailed programme will follow in due course. For further information and registration, visit the conference website.
